If you run a large event, with multiple sessions, each having a host, a line-up of speakers, and an audience, you need a flawless experience for everyone involved. Whether you run a fully virtual or hybrid event, our Virtual Event Platform will unify and engage your community as one. In this video, our founder and CEO, Jelmer van Ast gives you a little tour around the most powerful feature of our platform: virtual moderated sessions.
Our event apps have enabled associations and meeting planners for many years to captivate their online and live audiences and turn them into active communities. When the world went into lock-down, because of the devastating impact of COVID-19, we have stepped up and integrated live-stream video into our platform. And that’s why we are so excited to announce our #OneCommunity Virtual Event Platform today. Happy watching!
A new year has tiptoed in! We want to take a moment to wish you a great 2020 and share our vision on the future of event apps.
This year we will see a strong movement to deep personalization of user experience. And because of the desire for a truly engaging and sophisticated approach, event apps will become more functional, more personal and more effective. We believe that the winners will be those companies who strive to make the entire user experience better and commit to continuous innovation. Consequently, our 2020 vision is based on simplicity and putting the user at the center of everything we develop.
Conferences and events are all about networking, sharing knowledge, and enhancing ideas. So event apps should strive to enable attendees to discover what’s valuable and concentrate on what matters. Be enabling, rather than being a distraction. In this article, we will share five ways in which we will put the user first in our products.
Messages are the perfect way to keep your attendees in the know about your organisation. You can use them to announce event updates or to share your latest news. But how can you post urgent information like time changes or deadlines without running a risk to clutter the app’s newsfeed? The solution: expiration dates. Our latest feature within the message scheduler allows you to keep the right focus by showing messages only while they are relevant. Here is how:
One of the most asked questions to our Customer Success Managers is: “How can I ensure that my event app will be a success?” Making an event app successful doesn’t only mean offering the right functionalities and features, it is also closely connected to your app promotion. Just providing a great app doesn’t necessarily mean that all your attendees will use it. But what happens if the app promotion becomes another point on your already packed to-do list? Conference Compass wants to make this easy for you with our all-new App Promotion Kit.
We are excited to introduce you to CC Assist, our how-to video series on the Conference Compass Support Pages and Conference Compass Youtube Channel. The videos will dive deeper into Eureka, as well as our content management system and enable you to better navigate and set-up your own app. We will walk you through the processes of different app features and teach you a wide variety of app building techniques. Learn everything you need to know, on demand and from the comfort of your office.
If your business is operating in Europe or working with European clients, you have likely been affected by the General Data Protection Regulation. Event planners, associations and PCO’s are no exception: The GDPR forced them to rethink their use of personal data and how they can optimise their procedures to ensure security and privacy. This includes their mobile apps, as these contain sensitive information like speaker profiles or contact information. Seeing this challenge, we released a new feature that will help you to stay in control – User roles. Now, it will be easier than ever to give the right people access to your app and it’s data.

What makes us at Conference Compass the perfect partner for medical and scientific organizations is that we understand the special needs of their conferences and constantly update our products to better cater to them. One key element of academic conferences are posters and abstracts. They play an important role for professionals and create the opportunity to engage with other conference attendees and share their research. As traditional paper poster sessions have started to become more digital, we optimized our app once again. Now, posters cannot only be easily added, found, and viewed, but also rated with all our event apps.
Conferences and their technologies have developed in the past year and the changes affected the way we view, plan and experience conferences. While certain trends are bound to stay, some technologies will see major updates in 2019. We asked our team about their predictions and trends for the coming year, and here are their answers:
